Let me just start out by saying that I am not complaining. I just started an alt on a trial account and noticed that some skills cannot be trained by trial accounts. I don't mind, I'll just train them when I've paid for the account, but was wondering why.

The Racial Industrial skill I can understand. Miners would just perpetually create trial accounts, train racial industrial, and have it act as a hauler for you for two weeks, rinse repeat. Anchoring is another, probably because someone could raise a trial alt just to anchor some stuff for a POS and build another one after two weeks.

Other skills I don't understand why a trial account can't train them. Battlecruisers, for example. Does CCP think that people will create 10 trial alts and put them into battlecruisers for a quick blob? I'm not even sure that would work given that the trial alts would have very few skills to support that class ship.

Anyone know of any other skills that a trial account can't train and why?

I think you answered your own question if you think about it.. BC.. BS they all can have 6-7 low slots and can have a base cargo hold of about 500.. with 7 expanded cargo 2.. thats several thousand m3 of hauling room. The industry and higher level mining skills are off limits because if you could use strip miners on a trial account you basically did not need to pay for a mining alt account... the same with the industry/invention skills.

Looking back, the skills that are locked are well chosen and reasonable.. besides a real newb should not be getting into anything bigger than a cruiser in 2 weeks and even thats a stretch with the learning curve in this game.

Ah, I didn't even think about using a BC or BS as a hauler. :P

Yeah, I wasn't saying the limits weren't reasonable. I was just wondering why certain skills were limited, like the BC.

Macro miners would all make Rokh Alts with Miners in all their highs.

Also, suicide gankers would now be limited to trial accounts if they could fly BC/BS. Sec status gets too low on your 3 characters, go make another free account. While that would be cool, CCP has decided it cannot happen that way.


Sig? What sig?
